    Maybe it’s because the wine’s produced by an established, premium winery (Vavasour) and owned by a loaded Yank Billionaire (Bill Foley) who probably has more money than he knows what to do with, we’re not sure but we do know this Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc has a track record that puts it up there with the best bang for buck wine labels in NZ!

    There’s no cheeky Aussie grapes here! No way, Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc is 100% Marlborough Sauvy just the way we love it. And boy does it pack a punch for the money.

    Supposedly a secondary label, given the amount of Golds and 5 Stars the Dashwood labels have picked up over the years has made us wonder whether someone got the tanks mixed up at Vavasour!

    Continuing the trend of colour coding their bottle caps you’ll find their Sauvy under a shade of lime green, under the cap you’ll find your typical Marlborough Sauvy – bursting with juicy, zesty, citrusy flavours. Pair it with fresh seafood dishes or a classic Kiwi fish ‘n’ chips from your local.
